Travel Technology Sustainability News

Developers and providers of various tourism technologies and smart tourism also contribute to the sustainable development of tourism and the achievement of the SDGs.

They are under pressure from rising trends as well as growing demand from tourists for more sustainable ways to travel.

If we understand that smart tourism is essentially a free and easy exchange of information between all participants in the tourism process, then innovative solutions and technologies increase overall awareness and, ultimately, make tourism conscious and responsible, both on the part of tourists and the travel service providers. Moreover, the transfer of impressions and the unique cultural and historical code of the destination (aka information and data) is the main task of tourism in general, and smart tourism makes this transfer easy and efficient.

Here we have collected various examples of how manufacturers of various travel technologies in practice are implementing sustainable tourism development and contributing to the achievement of the SDGs.
